    Windows 10 displays wrong motherboard model


    Hello everyone. I just fresh installed Windows 10 pro 64 bit on my new pc. The problem is that system info in windows displays my motherboard as gigabyte g1 sniper b5 but I have gigabyte g1 b6 sniper. I checked in bios and it displays the motherboard correctly. Some third party app displays info also wrong. Can this somehow affect my system performance?

    Doubt it would affect system performance.

    Yeah, it will not affect the performance. Maybe it's just some string error on the bios level, try to check if you have the latest bios version.

    I do have latest bios. I hope it's just a cosmetic error in system info because there's a big difference in sound quality output. G1 B5 has Realtek alc 898 codec but g1 b6 has Realtek alc 1150.... Any ideas how to fix it?

    The only real issue is if you have the wrong devices showing in Device Manager. Both boards have the same chipset and LAN so you're alright there. The only real difference I could see, looking at the specs, was the sound chip. So check in Device Manager that the correct one is listed.

    Oh, I suppose that in the future, after Windows and/or BIOS updates, Windows starts reporting the correct model you may have an activation issue if the codes used in the hardware hash have changed.

    But that is a highly speculative 'what if' so I wouldn't worry about it. And I'd be surprised if MS support wouldn't resolve such a scenario.

    What does device manager show for your Realtek Sound?

    I'm at the work right now and I can't check device manager in my pc but I will update thread when I will be home.

    Have you checked your devices to make sure they're running the latest Windows 10 drivers?
